MAJESCO ENTERTAINMENT BRINGS A FISTFUL OF CLASSIC BEAT ‘EM UP ACTION WITH DOUBLE DRAGON: NEON; AVAILABLE NOW

Majesco and WayForward Re-imagine the Classic 2D Brawler; Available Now on PlayStation®Network and Xbox LIVE Arcade

Edison, New Jersey – September 12, 2012Majesco Entertainment Company (NASDAQ: COOL), an innovative provider of video games for the mass market, announced today its highly anticipated side-scrolling beat ’em up, Double Dragon: Neon, is available now on PlayStation®Network and Xbox LIVE®Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft.

Billy and Jimmy are back in action and more radical than ever, as they return to the streets to save their shared love interest Marian from a new foe, Skullmageddeon. Players pair up with their pals for local “bro-op” play, all while kneeing, punching, and high-fiving their way through new hyper-saturated worlds designed to take players from the mean streets to robo-riddled outer space. Billy and Jimmy aren’t alone, as long-standing foes Williams, Linda, and even the brick-busting Abobo try and stop them. Through the powers of magical mix-tapes (and the occasional high-five), our Sōsetsuken fighting-style masters are well equipped to crush any street scum in their path.

The classic 1987 original rocked the faces off gamers in arcades across the world. Now  renowned developer WayForward applies its retro gaming prowess to bring this classic franchise to the 21st century while celebrating its beat ‘em up roots. Double Dragon Neon’s gameplay is coupled with a radical new art direction pulled directly from the 1980s, in an acid-washed, electrical, over-the-top celebration of that decade’s aesthetics. Rarely has a franchise been so inspired by this historical period in gaming.

Double Dragon Neon is now available on PlayStation Network for $9.99 and on Xbox LIVE Arcade for Xbox 360 for 800 Microsoft Points. As an added bonus, Playstation Plus members can get Double Dragon Neon for FREE now thru January.
